Decision Making Questions

The other day, in my Life Together class, we were using a case study from a church to discuss pastoral ethics. This was a really helpful exercise and conversation, one that I hope we have more of in the future. My friend Jev had some very insightful thoughts at the end of the discussion that I thought I would share with you. These are three questions he tries to ask himself when he is making a decision, especially one of an ethical nature that involves other people. I always appreciate Jev's wisdom, and I hope you do too.

Decision Making Questions
  1. How can I treat this person (or these people) as real people?
  2. How can this work out to be a transformational experience for everyone involved?
  3. How can this issue be an opportunity to learn to love God and love our neighbors?
